WEST LIBERTY – On Friday, Jan. 13, 2017, the South Union Mennonite Church, 56 state Route 508, will host the African Children’s Choir for a 7 p.m. performance. The concert will include African songs and dances, children’s songs, traditional spirituals and gospel favorites. The free concert is open to all.

Music for Life, the parent organization for The African Children’s, works in seven African countries: Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. MFL has educated over 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs. MFL’s purpose is to help create new leadership for tomorrow’s Africa by focusing on education.
The choir has performed before presidents, heads of state and, most recently, Queen Elizabeth II for her diamond jubilee. The choir has sung alongside Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Michael W. Smith and other performers.
